Soon to be new home owner from VA


Hey guys/gals,

My name is Steve and I am in the midst of purchasing my first house. I have been a condo owner for the past couple of years, but the wife and I are looking to own a home. We found one that we fell is perfect for a first home. The house has a new roof, new vinyl siding, and new windows. The exterior/lawn/garden has been very much kept up.

The interior of the house needs some work. But at the price we are getting the house we can deal with that. 90% of the house has hardwood floors. We are thinking about refinishing the living room and hall way and carpeting the bedrooms. The kitchen is dated and will completely remodeled.

My wife and myself are both 24 and both inexperienced with owning a house and the work that we have ahead of us. Hopefully I will gain some knowledge from this site to help me through my journey.
